Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Book Three of the Deptford Histories, the prequel series to the Deptford Mice Triology, introduces Thomas, here a hard-drinking old sea mouse who writes down his memories to exorcise them. As a youngster, he and his friend Woodget are hoodwinked into a terrifying voyage complete with storms, battles, and a heathen god. Although this is the final book in the prequel series, it stands alone. Its archaic sentence structures and florid word choices are problematic, but series fans probably won't mind. They'll find the familiar mix of violent and heroic acts that has made the series popular. Ilene Cooper

Review

"Deptford fans know just what to expect: overstuffed plots, dense with tragedy and treachery and true friendship, rife with occult allusions and an undercurrent of brooding menace. The heroes are stalwart and true; the villains sadistic and grotesque; and the nonstop action builds through gruesome gusts of shuddering violence to an apocalyptic climax and bittersweet epilogue. Backwards are the sentences shaped, and deep the clauses piled; lush and vermilion are the adjectives thereof. The end result out to be risible, but Jarvis pulls it off, to stunning effect." -Kirkus Reviews

Format: Paperback
Jarvis kept up his usual type of writing. Catches the reader and doesn't let go until the end. It's hard to put the book down.
